"My mother, Mahendran Sathiyadevi, is 81 years old currently. She has metal in her left hands and knee (due to a fall). We are staying around Katong. She is very interested in gardening. She reads magazines and goes online to get tips on gardening. Since onset of Covid-19 pandemic and circuit breaker, she has been into My Edibles Garden. She has been growing vegetables like ladies fingers, chillies (both green and red), brinjals and lime. She also has banana and papaya plants. She uses the vegetables for home cooking and we eat the fruits. She grows other plants too. like hibiscus and ferns. My mother is able to prepare and share many traditional dishes including using the stem and the flower of the banana. My family members are very proud f her efforts."--Contributed by Mahendran Rudrarani, as part of the "Documenting COVID-19 in Singapore" collection community call.
